It’s an eclectic selection of new releases this week, all coming out this Wednesday, May 12th, 2021!


The big book is a $9.99 One Shot Special from DC spotlighting all of their Asian characters, The DC Festival of Heroes Asian Superhero Celebration!

Characters like Cassandra Cain, Katana, Green Lantern Tai Pham, the Atom, Dana Tan (a.k.a. Batman Beyond), Red Arrow, Lady Shiva, Damian Wayne and more will be featured in numerous short stories. There’s even a cool section on the specific heritage of each Asian character!

Future State Gotham is a new ongoing set in the world of Batman created in Future State. 

It’s also told in black and white, to give a different feel to the Gotham of the future!

Justice League Last Ride is a new mini series written by Chip Zdarsky featuring the “holy” trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman.

Joker has quickly become one of our best selling DC titles, and you can still hop on the title with issues #3 this week!


Over at Marvel, Doctor Doom will take a bride in a new storyline starting in Fantastic Four #32!

Heroes Reborn turned out to be a really fun take on the Marvel Universe without our heroes as we know them. It’s a seven issue mini series that’s coming out weekly, so be sure to let us know if you want to keep it on your file! (weekly’s sell out easily as we can’t change our orders withing the time frame.)

There’s also some one shots that go with it, so keep an eye out for those as well.

Another sell out last week was the War of the Bounty Hunters one shot. The story continues this week in Star Wars #13, acting as a prelude to the five issue mini-series that will be coming up. Another thing that might be worth adding to your file.!

The business end of the X-Men get their own series in X-Corp #1!

Angel and Monet are the CXO’s making sure Krakoa’s interests are well taken care of.


This week’s big small press book is Time Before Time #1, a new ongoing series from Image Comics!

“The year is 2140, and to escape a world with no future, many turn to the Syndicate, a criminal organization who, for the right price, will smuggle you back in time to a better life. After working for the Syndicate for years, Tatsuo and Oscar decide to steal one of their boss’s time machines-but soon find that the one thing you can’t run from is your past.”

That’s it for this week! Thanks again for shopping at CNJComics!
